Screenshots, announcements and more!

No characters were announced this week.
Miiverse Screenshots 2/24/14-2/28/14 In this screenshot, we see Diddy Kong using his rocketbarrels and knocking back Little Mac and Villager in Mega Man's Dr Wily's Castle arena on Wii U. The rocketbarrels have the power to now fly along more horizontal trajectories, and can bounce off opponents in mid-boost.  In these screenshots, we see Mario and Bowser (above) on the Super Smash Bros. arena, and Kirby and King Dedede (below) on the W.V.B.A Punch Out!! arena, both on Wii U. Sakurai says these are two different stages, and not affected by what character is in the arena.
In this screenshot, we see Fox McCloud doing his finishing attack on Samus in Mega Man's Dr. Wily's Castle stage in Wii U. Now, Sakurai explains, after using several attacks in a row it automatically turns into a finishing move.
In this screenshot, we can see Luigi chasing Waluigi, a returning assist trophy, while Mario is hangi…

Miiverse Screenshots 2.17.14-2.21.14
 In this screenshot, we see Little Mac using an strong up attack on Mega Man in the Punch Out!! Arena on Wii U. Sakurai explains that Little Mac is a very powerful fighter on ground, and not a great fighter in the air, as shown below by Little Mac in the screenshot below.

In this screenshot, we see Peach and Bowser checking out the new Fairy Bottle item (from the Legend of Zelda games) on the Super Mario Galaxy stage on Wii U. This new item takes away or heals damage and makes you less prone to attacks.  In this screenshot, we see Mega Man and King Dedede in the Nintendogs arena on 3DS. As shown here, the puppy is ginormous compared to the fighters.
In this screenshot, we see Samus and Little Mac, once again to …

Mario Kart 7 Review (3DS)

Mario Kart 7 was a launch title for the Nintendo 3DS along with Super Mario 3D Land released in 2011. There's no storyline to Mario Kart 7 other than the typical races. There's 16 total characters in the game, 8 are starter characters and 8 are unlockable by beating any 150cc cup in 1st place. 8 total cups with classic and new tracks, great visuals and customizable karts, there is so much to see and do in Mario Kart 7. But, how well does it stand to it's rivals?

There are four modes to Mario Kart 7: Grand Prix where you can race in 8 cups with 4 courses in each cup. In the Grand Prix mode, you can choose the level of difficulty: 50cc Easy, 100cc Average, and 150cc Challanging. 4 cups are full of brand new tracks, and the other 4 contain classic tracks with new tricks and secrets added with the new funtions of Mario Kart 7. The next mode is Time Trails, where you race for the fastest time agaist your own time or ghost data collected over Streetpass and Spotpass. The other …

Mario Kart 8 Newcomers: The Koopalings

Bowser's not well known children (the Koopalings, or Koopa Kids) are newcomers to the Mario Kart 8 and were announced for the Mario Kart series in Nintendo Direct 2.13.14. All 7 Koopalings are in the game: Larry, Morton, Wendy, Iggy, Roy, Lemmy, and Ludwig. Bowser Jr, the most known of Bowser's children wasn't seen in the trailer and not announced as a racer yet, but he might be because he was in the Mario Kart Wii roaster. We see 3 new courses and 3 classic courses in this trailer such as Shy Guy Falls (as shown above) and Music Park as a classic course from Mario Kart 7. We don't know what characters will be removed from Mario Kart, but it's safe to assume Wiggler is not going to be a racer this time around because Yoshi is riding a kart shaped like a Wiggler in the trailer. Besides these little details, the trailer shows off much more, so I recommend you watch it.

Watch the full Nintendo Direct 2.13.14 below:

Miiverse screenshots 2.10.14-2.14.14 In this screenshot, we see the background of the Nintendogs stage for 3DS. The background detail shows one of the dogs watching the television.
In this screenshot, we see Marth and Lucario (using his Double Team move) on the Super Smash Bros. arena stage on Wii U. The version of Lucario that Marth is attacking is an illusion.
In these screenshots, we see Toon Link using the improved Home-run Bat on Donkey Kong and Bowser in the Skyward Sword (Skyloft) stage on Wii U. The noticeable change of the new Home-run bat item is now the bat has an updated design and it's much more powerful than in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. In this screenshot, it shows Peach's taunt in action on the Battlefield stage on Wii U. We can see Little Mac from Punch-Out!! in his rightful Punch-Out!! arena stage, or what used to be cleverly disguised as …

Sonic Boom 3DS and Wii U game annouced

Some big news for Sonic fans had come out from Sega today about a brand new video game called Sonic Boom, coming later this year for the 3DS and Wii U. Sonic Boom was announced last year as a television show airing fall 2014 on Cartoon Network featuring redesigned versions of the Sonic team: Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, and Amy. Word was spread about a new Sonic game, and no new news was announced until today.
Sonic and friends find a mysterious island as the trailer goes, and then they run off on an adventure. This is all the evidence I have for figuring out what the plot is, besides the absolute: defeating Dr. Eggman. Each character has his/her own special ability, like Tails, who can use a ray gun and fly using his tail, like in the original Sonic The Hedgehog games for the Sega Genesis. The trailer reveals some of the brand new moves and how the environment might look like in this new Sonic game.

Top 3 iOS Concepts

It is close to the next iOS announcement, and possibly a large improvement on iOS 7. A controversial topic was the icons of iOS 7, and many, including myself, hope that improvements can be made for the iPad interface as many apps aren't supported like Calculator and Weather, and many things feel stretched out and odd looking. The dock on the iPad and iPhone look the same, but an iPad looks odd and one background can't match the theme. Of course, these are just my opinions of iOS 7 and the interface.

What'd I would like fixed:

iOS DockMissing features on different devicesSlow animationsSub-par icon designHere are the top 3 concepts:
3. iOS 8 leaked, lol

      No, I'm not joking. What I take from this is a little more theme. I'd like a desktop feel for my iOS device. It isn't exactly as bugged as this concept, but a unified-experience between Mac OS X and iOS. Since the original iPhone, themes have been available for iPhone OS. It should be an option to customize yo…
